Describe your Headache and Migraine Monster

For years I have had a relationship with my migraine monster.  I actually have thought about naming it.  As I thought of the most ugly awful name I could give it, I vetoed the idea.  I didn’t want to give it the respect of naming it and looking at it as anything but the monster that it is.  I felt that giving it a name would personify it into something that I could possibly make excuses for or have anything but negative hateful feelings for.  As for “it who shall not be named” I will admit that I have talked to it many times.  I beg, plead, and bargain.  When my migraine peaks and I am at a pain level 10, I make deals with God and “it who shall not be named” to allow me to survive.  There have been times I did not think I would survive and times I did not care if I did.  I’m not a deeply religious person in the traditional way but I do have a very personal relationship with God.  We speak often and I prefer to think that there is something greater and far reaching than the migraine monster that resides inside me.

    I am profoundly moved by your bravery in sharing your very personal struggles with migraines. You amaze and inspire me and I couldn’t be prouder of you for sharing your struggles. You will absolutely inspire someone who might just be in their darkest moment when they read your words of honesty and hope…when they need it most.

    Thanks so much. Not only have you seen me suffer but you have suffered yourself. It has empowered me to take ownership of my disease instead of it just owning me. Thanks for reading!
